Installation Process

The installation process for an exterior french drain is a little more labor intensive compared to an interior drain due to the amount of ground that is excavated. Our exterior french drains cover the entire perimeter of your home compared to just the basement, so this requires more materials to be used.

However, one benefit of having an exterior french drain is that there is no need for a sump pump or tank to be installed. This means that you spend less time maintaining a sump pump and spend more time on what matters most in your life. This also means that you won’t have to worry about the slight noise that can come from a sump tank.

Perfect for Landscaping Projects

If you are looking to take on a large landscaping project for your backyard, why not include a french drain along with that process since the ground is already being broken? Add some practicality to your next landscaping project by having us install an exterior french drain for you.

This also applies to anyone wanting to add an addition to their house. There is ground that is going to be broken adding this addition so it only makes sense to protect that addition with a proper drainage system.

If you are wanting to replace parts of your lawn with rocks, gravel, or mulch an exterior french drain is a great addition because it will be perfectly concealed so no one will even know it’s there.

Pair with Surface Drains

If you have water collecting around your house, chances are you may have patches of your lawn where water collects as well. If you are having an exterior french drain system installed, pair it with our surface drainage systems as well so everything works together in harmony.

We can even install drains under your gutters so you don’t have to have long gutter drains extending from your house. They can be integrated into the ground and out of sight. You can also integrate a garage trench drain system with our exterior french drain systems so you can work on your vehicles with ease.

Don’t start your next landscaping project without consulting with Steel City Waterstoppers and Foundation Repair to assess the state of your foundation. If you live in an older home without a french drainage system, chances are that you may have some minor water damage. Getting this fixed while your yard is getting dug up could make your project more efficient can could potentially save you some money getting everything done at once.
